Peter and Barnabas

Even the lions faltered
even the lions failed
even the lions had
   their moments
   best forgotten
   especially by
when the sun darkened
when the voices rose
when the desire
for  acceptance
chained and bound
the lions
I find this encouraging,

Love it. Love the imagery of Peter and Barnabas as lions. Fantastic.

Being bound by the desire for acceptance. The more I think about that, the more I'm thinking I might need the metal-cutters. I really liked the understated tone of this one, which was followed by the twist in the conscience that screams "relates"!
Much enjoyed.
